Idiots do it their way


Chapter 8.11 Baby Chaos

Last time 6 babies were born and some home improvements were done.

With 6 babies in the house you would think clusters like this wouldn’t happen.  Guys come on there are 6 cribs you don’t have to put all of them in one.

Azrael seems to be happy he’s a dad.  He has actually proved to be very helpful and usually comes to help when the babies need something.

Of course most of the work is done by these two.  As you can imagine not much work is being done on the LTWs at the moment, sorry girls.

Proof that idiots can be helpful.

So can grandparents! 😀

Munchkin: That’s nice and all but she’s kind of in my way.

There’s another crib behind you!

In the midst of the chaos these two still find time for each other which is nice.  ❤

Magenta: Well this came round too quickly.

Magenta: Well this sucks.

Aw come on you make a cute elder. ❤

Now she looks even better.

More baby chaos!

One member of the family who hasn’t even been up to seen the babies yet is Shawna.  I don’t think she leaves her room all that much any more.

Magenta: In my younger days I could rock that look.  Probably still could you know.

Not a sight I want to see.

So it begins!

Another birthday.  Davender is growing up.

I thought he looked a bit dull so I gave him a bit of colour! Pretty kitty. ❤

I lost the pic of the notification but it told me that Siamese and Kay had a baby boy called Jeremy.  I went to check him out and found Kay in the bushes with him.

I went into CAS so you could have a look at the little blue cuteness. ❤

Look who found the nursery!

Shawna: Ooh babies.

Crystal: But I wanted to hold that one.

Crystal: Hello kitty. ❤

This made me laugh so much.  She left the chair, went to the nursery, got a baby and returned to the chair with it. XD

Oh yes there is a time machine in the basement.  Azrael and Munchkin decided it needed ‘breaking in’!

Savannah escaped the madness for a short scuba trip.

Savannah: Ooh Octopus.

Crystal: Why can’t I pick them up? What’s going on.

Floor birthdays! Right time for introductions

This one is Paprika. Her traits are Loves the Heat and Easily impressed.

This little guy is Mace.  His traits are Slob and Athletic. Also he’s a fairy like his daddy.

His sister is Ginger.  She is an Evil Loner.

Next up is Cinnamon.  She is Exictable and Athletic.

Chia is next.  She is a genius that loves the outdoors

Finally we have Annatto.  She is a clumsy virtuoso.

Wow I think is the most introductions I have done at once.  That’s it for now.  Next time we move on to the madness that is having 6 toddlers at once! Fun fun fun




Chapter 8.10 Full House

Ten chapters in and we finally get to the babies!  Last time we finished up the trip to Egypt and we had three pregnancies

Shawna’s lifebar is nearly full and she spends most of her time in her room.  Thanks to her irresistible trait though she is rarely alone.  Unfortunately that also means her needs are in the red a lot of the time.  How she doesn’t cause more fails I will never know.

Here’s Davender looking cute as always.  He has now gained the non destructive trait.

Just because she is pregnant doesn’t mean she can relax.  There are always things to fix.

Munchkin: Why is it always the toilets. Can’t we get ones that don’t break?

Of course she also has to work on her instrument skills for her LTW.  Draws a crowd which is nice.  I may get her out and about playing for tips at some point.

Magenta here becomes a elder very soon.  Here she is in denial about it! XD  Nice castle though.

Azrael managed to use the microwave to cook hotdogs.  Gained a skill point at the same time.  Nicely done.

I got a pop up saying Magenta was missing work.  I found her just outside her workplace drinking.

Magenta: What does it matter, I retire soon anyway.

Oh do you now.

Just Crystal doing laundry.  I love her ❤

Munchkin had a wish to get to level four handiness so she is upgrading things.

Munchkin: When can I leave this bathroom?

Savannah: Don’t we employ someone to do this for us?

Yes but they’re useless so you get to do it instead!

While she was doing that I was selling a few things in her inventory that she had found previously

She’s doing great! Just another 38,000 to go!

Oh here we go.  Munchkin is first to go into labour after upgrading the sink.

As I was putting the walls up in order to get a picture I noticed Beast’s urn is still in the hallway.  I have since moved this to the graveyard.

Savvanah, quickly followed by Crystal makes three sims giving birth at the same time.  Oh joy of joys.

What are the rest of the family doing while this is going on?

Magenta is watching TV after a hard day at work.

Shawna is giving Davender fusses.

Azrael is asleep and oblivious to everything going on.

Munchkin gave birth to a boy and a girl.  I called them Ginger and Mace.  After a lot of changes I settled on spices for the naming theme this time.

Poor little Mace was no traits

Thanks to Master controller I was able to populate his traits. He now has a personality.

Munchkin had two girls who I named Chia & Paprika.  Paprika also had no traits.

Problem solved.

Crystal also gave birth to two girls in the newly renovated basement.  I named them Annatto & Cinnamon

So we now 6 children only one of which is a boy.  Happy days.

I will give them all proper introductions when they become toddlers.

I have been busy with house renovations.  Here is the new look basement.  This is the main area.  Displayed some the families stuff acquired over the generations.

Same room looking the other way.

Little side room full of unused bits and bobs.

Finally I have extended the 1st floor to accommodate the newly arrived generation 9.  Wow can you believe it! The penultimate generation have finally been born!

To end with here are a couple of amusing glitches.

Crystal had trouble putting one of her daughters in the crib and bust a hole in the wall while doing so.

Then we had an alien with an invisible ship.  XD


Chapter 8.9 Idiots in Egypt Part 2 and Consequences

Last time saw the start of my heir’s honeymoon.  Both couples headed off to Egypt while I kept everything crossed.  Savannah headed off to explore a bit while Munchkin and Azrael kept themselves busy at base camp.

We rejoin our honeymooners for the rest of their trip.

These two are still very much in love.  It’s really nice when this happens. ❤ They are doing a great job of ignoring the creepy local paparazzi too.

Of course they are not the only ones enjoying the holiday.  Savannah having tried exploring decides to spend some time with her wife.

I never tire of watching the tent fly.  That would be so scary if that happened in real life though!

Munchkin took a trip to the market to get some souvenirs and found a huge basement.  Being a Mendoza the first thing she heads for is the nectar rack.

Munchkin: They wont miss one.

She then gets overly excited about finding a tiny study.  The lack of chair at the desk bugs me a bit.

Munchkin: Oooh shiny.

Food Vendor: Ugh your that one who Woohooed in public.  Get out of my store, you are driving away my customers.

Crystal: Just say the word.

Savannah: Leave him, he’s not worth it.

In an attempt to get them away from the tents I sent them all to the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut.  It’s a holiday so they are seeing the sights.

Azrael: Why are there so many stairs?

Well that plan backfired.  You take them to a beautiful place with lovely views and still nothing changes.

Savannah: It’s really nice eating out in the open like this.

Azrael: The light, it’s so pretty.

Another trip to the market, this time for better food than the quick meals available back at base camp.  Munchkin takes the opportunity to build her guitar skill while Azrael plays in the sand.

I forget what I was doing at this point, looking for something I think.  Anyway I noticed smoke coming from one of the houses.  You can see it in the centre of the photo.


Yikes! I wonder how that started?

After that I go to base camp to check on Savannah and Crystal.  Well at least it’s a change from the tent.

Munchkin: Before you say anything I am just going to bed.  I am really tired.

Automonous dip kiss.  ❤

Paparazzi: A witch and a greenie.  This is gold!

Oi don’t call her greenie.

All good things as the say must come to an end so here we are back home again.  They are all exhausted so I direct them to their new bedrooms for some much needed rest.

Then in the morning this happened…

Surely not all three of them! o_o

Savannah went on a dive in search of more things to sell for her LTW.  This amused me a ghost and a mermaid chatting.  Apparently I have a ghost family in the town now.

Munchkin is not idle either.  She is working on her own LTW.  Sweet that Azrael came to join her.  He does this a lot actually.

I really don’t know what to say in response to this.  Oh wait I’ve got it

Munchkin: Hey babe just so you know I’m pregnant.

Azrael: That’s awesome.  I hope it’s a boy.  *rolls wish for a boy*

Since we have been doing so well lets end with a fail.  That irresistible trait really doesn’t do her any favours.  Everyone keeps wanting to talk to her which cancels out the actions to tend to her needs.

Savannah: Please tell me she’s not dead.  I don’t want a dead woman on my carpet.

Relax she just passed out.


Generation 8 Heir Poll Results

Hi guys! I have closed the poll and will now announce the results.  The winner of the poll and the torch holder of the next generation is…


She was in the lead right from the start!

Savannah: You expect me to take over from a father I never met?

Pretty much.  You do get a cool house.

Savannah: Sold!

This house is one I am building from scratch (well almost) I used one from the house bin and basically just went from there.  I will give you the grand tour when I have finished.  Which might take a while as I am trying to write the next chapter for the Ordonez legacy as well.  It’s good to be busy right?

I am very proud of this house so far and I haven’t even started on the inside yet.  So looking forward to showing it off. 😀


Generation 8 Heir Poll

Wow Generation 8!! I am surprised I have managed to get this far. I admit Gambit’s sudden and tragic death was a small bump in the road.  I am over that now and ready to move on to the next generation.

Now that Magenta has had her babies (yes there was more than one) it is time to meet them.

Magenta: Here they are. 😀

Funny. I kind of like that dress on her, she may end up with it when she ages up.

Anyway I have aged them up to toddlers so lets meet them

First is Munchkin.  She is easily impressed and friendly.  She has Gambit’s hair and I think those eyes came from Max. That skin colour must have come from Starla too, it’s a bit dark to be Magenta’s.

This is a Munchkin Cat.  So cute ❤

Next is Savannah. She is a Genius and a heavy sleeper.  That is Magenta’s hair and I am not sure where the eye colour came from, probably Starla?

This is a Savannah Cat. I having nothing more to add.

Last is Siamese.  He is Good and Athletic.  His hair and eye colour both come from Magenta.  Now this looks more like Magenta’s skin tone.  Nice that they are all different, I like variety.

This is his namesake.  I didn’t used to like them very much, mainly to do with these two from Lady and the Tramp I think.

BTW hair, skin and eyes are pretty much the only genetics I am good at guessing in sims!

OK so now that we have met the triplets it’s time for an heir poll.

Here are the contenders.  I have gone into CAS for each of them so you can see them all as teens.  Their current traits as well.

Now that you have seen them all it’s time to make your choice and cast your vote.
